You know why nothing will get done in this country? Because people can't conversate without letting their emotions get in the way.
I am commenting on a post right now that has T'challa and Kilmonger as the cover of Stankonia. Alright, so I asked " why is it the American flag and not the wakanda flag?" And I had a bunch of "woke" fans mad at me for asking that, assuming I didn't know who Outkast was. Nah, I know who they are but I'm just wondering why this "artist" directly ripped off Outkast in a sloppy unoriginal fashion. Not only that, both T'challa and Kilmonger struggled in wakanda. King T'challa rose up and is making great change in his nation. Outkast was doing it in America so...Why not change the flag? Apparently I didn't"get it". This being said, some fake ass geek said I was a colonizer. Funny, I do look the part but listen here bitch, what you won't do is undermine EVERYTHING my family has been through at the hands of a colonizer Because you're too ignorant to peep my page. I am the product of a colonizer fall out. What I WON'T DO is what they did and stoop to their level(colonizer). Love who you love regardless of race. What I WONT do is assume someone's story based on their skin color.
So yes, that particular piece of "art" was uninspired, inaccurate and lazy.

Hi I'm Mary, I'm 26 years old and I live in Australia. I was diagnosed a couple of months ago with ASD and ADHD without the hyperactivity.
I always felt different but mostly tried to be like everyone else. It took me 25 years before I realised I could be Autistic. Community mental health misdiagnosed me and treated me poorly and did not help me figure out I was Autistic... That came from my own research after years of feeling inadequate compared to my peers. I'm so glad to finally know myself and now have nothing to do with the community mental health services that did way more harm than good to engage with.
Finding this page was a blessing I realised I wasn't alone. The neurodiversity movement has helped me recognise that I have challenges and strengths but that it's ok to be me.
I want people to know that being disabled and/or neurodiverse comes with it's challenges but with proper diagnosis and understanding it can be better managed and accommodated for. We may not work full time or at all but we still have something to offer the world. I think that we should be fully supported to live the lives we want even if that looks really different from the norm.
I would like to squash the stereotype that all disabilities are visible... They are not or I would have been diagnosed long ago instead of struggling through the mental health system which was oblivious to the possibility I was Autistic.
Also I would like to squash the stereotype that someone like me can't be Autistic... Yes I can talk but I still struggle with communication in a big way, just because I can make eye contact and conversation sometimes with people I trust doesn't mean I can get through a job interview with ease.
Another stereotype I would like to squash is that we are all the same... For example I crave touch and some Autistics don't.
